Sucks to be Kwasi.

"I changed my mind about top rate tax" - pound rallies.

"But I'm not going to quit " - pound tanks all over again :mrgreen:
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

On the one hand, I can enjoy the schadenfreude of a party obsessed with market freedom getting actively live-critiqued by market freedom.

On the other, the extent to which these City bastards can profoundly change the conditions our existence by having an opinion is terrifying. I’ve never met a trader / investor who wasn’t either stupid or a cunt.

Few Tories distancing themselves from Trussery.
Shapps and Brexit Hardman shifting their positions for when the letters go in.

Aye. MPs reportedly 'coalescing'* around Sniffo and Whatsmyname. It would be - I won't say better - 'less worse'.

*Maybe coagulating is better.

Reading the news it seems
Official confirmation came at 7.25am, with Mr Kwarteng tweeting: 'We get it and we have listened.'
Is that correct? Surely official government policy that has such a massive potential impact on the value of Sterling, markets, interest rates etc can't be announced via Twitter? I don't think it would even be legal in Sweden. The government would have called a press conference and released a press release at the same time.

Yep. Revealed by tweet, and a series of follow up media interviews.
I like it. What is it?

It shouldn't be this way Jackos, but when you consider the speed at which they are making things up and then changing their minds, using an instant messaging service seems only sensible

Twitter guy, "She will oust Kwasi, create #Kwexit, and be praised by these same papers as an 'Iron Lady....' and then they will hope we forget about tax cut plan for the rich...."
Unfortunately she probably needs WWIII to break out in Eastern Europe to come close to The Milk Snatcher.

Yes thanks Liz, we'd worked out that was shit already.


How do governments of cunts fall? Gradually, and then all at once.

Quite extraordinary the sheer ineptitude of the last conservative govts in US, UK and here in Oz. Sheer and utter shittery beyond belief.

A party conference with a shiny new leader should be a marvellous celebration of forward looking togetherness. As it stands, however…

Anti growth coalition?

There's no such thing.
So now they're inventing enemies for the party to rally against.
Hopeless and embarrassing.

It's the playbook of the far right. Invent an enemy, give it a name and bang on about it until it becomes a thing.
Deep state, satanic pedos, woke lawyers, anti-growth coalition...
It's worked pretty well so far.
